During the recent federal election campaign, the Government committed to provide subsidised access to continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring (flash GM) for all people with type 1 diabetes.
The rollout of this expansion started on 1 July 2022. So what does this mean for Australians living with type 1 diabetes? How can you apply for the new program? And how can you discover which technology is available?
The Diabetes Alliance came together to answer your questions in an online event.
